Thousands of children are born each year with crippling medical disorders that they're forced to deal with throughout their entire lives — and many of these lives are tragically cut short by complications.
This brave boy was born with an incredibly rare condition that makes his skin fall off at the slightest touch, resulting in painful blisters and bleeding. There's no cure for the rare disorder, and for this 14-year-old, life couldn't be more complicated. His days and nights are spent in constant physical pain. But what's truly inspirational is that he rises above perpetual agony to live his life to the fullest.
Even though his life is filled with pain and anxiety, he still finds joy. Many people are quick to pity him for what he doesn't have, but he's more focused on celebrating what he does have.
There's an incredible message of optimism that permeates Jonathan's story, and it's one that we should all take to heart. via viralnova.com
